Wow, I'm terrible at keeping up here!Beastie
Sorry you keep getting BFNs, but it truly is too early! And your chart does look good. Good luck!escher
Good luck with the new sperm!! We're on try #7 with our KD, our last shot with his goods, and my NP said that she does have a belief that some sperm and some eggs were just never destined to meet successfully. (We're insemming this week or next, so I'm hoping that's not OUR case... but I do think there's something to it!)AmandaHope
Yes, we will take the baby if we need to. If the baby gets taken away from her, they will go to family first, and we are both willing and ready if it heads our way. It is so hard to be supportive to HER when we've given her so much support already and she's taken advantage of it left and right. The whole situation just sucks.BunnyLullabye
Sorry about your BFN. gellybean
Sorry about your DW's aunt! And your crazy vacation! Man, when it rains, it pours, huh? Are you still at BFN or has AF arrived? I hope you're still waiting and your BFP is right around the corner. COCO
Congrats on the twins! Amazing!!MissScarlett
May the LH force be with you.Thanks for all of the kind words about my sister.
I've moved past the anger and sadness, and now I'm just afraid for the baby. We're prepared to take the baby if the county comes calling. I think the best thing that can happen is if she gives it up for adoption or the county takes it away from her until she can care for it. It's been a really crappy few years dealing with her, I don't know why I'm surprised this is happening. Oy.Babymaking update:
After being on fairly aggressive meds last month and only producing one follicle, my doc upped my meds considerably this month. This is our last month with our preferred donor, so we wanted to go all out trying to make a baby. We went yesterday for our CD11 u/s and there were 6 dominant follicles, measuring 12-13 each. He was aiming for 4-5. He initially wanted to lower the dosage, but I expressed concern that it would go down to only 1 follicle. He has discussed selective reduction with us (and I know this is a controversial topic), and we are okay with it. It's not ideal, I pray it's not something we have to worry about, but we want a baby, ideally with this donor (who is DW's brother, who lives in Europe and is not accessible for more sperm). When I expressed concern about only 1 or 2 follicles, he decided to keep the meds as is. So if things go according to plan, we'll have 5-6 follicles come insemination time. Truthfully, the chance of more than 2 sticking is so slim... I would hate to be conservative and only end up with 1 or 2 follicles. He also only gets about 1 set of quads a year, and that's the most he's had. We've also already spent about $3k on this cycle alone - why slow down now? Because I have so many, he's treating this cycle like an IVF, without the egg extraction. This just means more drugs, and IVF grade progesterone post insemination. It'll be a shot as opposed to a suppository. He's having me do a shot of something to prevent me from prematurely ovulating on Thursday night. We do an u/s on Friday, hopefully a Lupron trigger Saturday night, insem on Monday morning, and HCG shot Monday night (I don't really understand why, but this is standard IVF stuff apparently). I hope to GOD this works. It's financially and emotionally draining, and the bravelle shots are starting to HURT. I'm putting it out into the universe that I want to be pregnant with not more than two babies.QOTD - Peaceful time:
Usually, right after AF leaves is pretty peaceful, and 2 days after IUI-8 days after IUI is also peaceful. The rest of the time is NUTS.QOTD - Surrogacy
I don't know if I could do it. Maybe for my other sister (NOT THE DRUG ADDICT), but I don't know. It would be difficult. I'm also so attached to the baby I haven't conceived yet... hmm.
I hope all of you TWW'ers are knocked up!!
